Doctrine vs. dogma; are there lists available?


#1

Hi there,
In another forum I found a post that stated Catholic dogma being that unchangeable teaching of the Church, and doctrine being a teaching that is changeable. Is that accurate, and is there a list available anywhere on which is which? I’m having a VERY grace-filled discourse with a Bible Christian, and she has been quite open to Truth (she even assured me she is praying to the Holy Spirit to guide her to the Truth!). I’m trying to show her that official Catholic teaching hasn’t changed over the years, while some other things might have, and such a listing (the simpler, the better) would be of great help!
Thank you and God bless!

I don’t have a simple list; however, you’ll find the information you’re looking for in Dr. Ludwig Ott’s book
Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma.
